Am I Happy Being Single? Hmmmmm.....

"You Are Pretty Happy Being Single"

You Are Pretty Happy Being Single
You have a full, fun life. And you definitely don't need love to be content.Of course, being single can get you down a little. Especially when you've been single for a while.But you know how to be patient and wait for the right person. Your life is too good to settle for anything!



Am I happy being single? That is an interesting question. And that last line: your life is too good to settle for anything - got me to thinking about a song that I like called, coincidentally, "Settlin'". Here are the lyrics:

Fifteen minutes left to throw me together
For mister right now, not mister forever
Don't know why I even try when I know how it ends
Looking like another "maybe we could be friends"
I've been leaving it up to fate
It's my life so it's mine to make

I ain't settling for just getting by
I've had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain't enough this time
I ain't settling for anything less than everything, yeah


With some good red wine and my brand new shoes
Gonna dance a blue streak around my living room
Take a chance on love and try how it feels
With my heart wide open now you know I will
Find what it means to be the girl
Change her mind and change her world

I ain't settling for just getting by
I've had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain't enough this time
I ain't settling for anything less than everything

I ain't settling for just getting by
I've had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain't enough this time

I ain't settling for just getting by
I've had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
I ain't settling no, no, no, no, no, no

So raise the bar high

Here's another one of my favorite groups, Sugarland, doing the song:



I am tired of "settling". I would rather be on my own and happy, than with someone just to be "with" someone. There is a certain kind of man I still dream about, hope for, pray about. Whether he and I will get together remains to be seen, if he even exists. But that's who I am waiting for. It's all or nothing this time.

I'm going to do like Jay does and put several different topics into one post.


Today is my last day of "vacation". I nowhere near got everything done that I wanted done, but I did do a lot. We ordered Rachael's class ring last night. It will be expensive, but we only had to put a $50 deposit on it, so luckily I have time to figure out how I'm going to pay for the rest of it. It will be so pretty. I'm glad she got the one she really wanted.

I've managed to do something to my neck. I was in a car accident about 3 years ago, with left me with a concussion, stitches in my forehead, and a stiff neck/upper back. And my neck has never really been the same since. I've had several people tell me I should go see a chiropractor. I probably should. Anyway, Tylenol and a heating pad are doing it for now.

Tonight is Aaron's very first friend sleepover. He was so excited last night he could hardly sleep. He has a bear named Rick (I don't know why his name is Rick. It just is) and he was telling "Rick" last night in bed what a great day today was going to be. Last night "Rick" needed a glass of milk before bed - luckily an empty cup satified him. Today "Rick" wanted toaster strudels for breakfast. I hope "Rick" doesn't start wanting allowance!`

I didn't get to sleep in one day this week! That doesn't seem fair, does it?

I watched "Man of the Year" and "Talledega Nights" this week. "Man of the Year" wasn't bad, but I'm glad I didn't pay for it. "Talledega Nights" cracks me up. It's so dumb it's funny. And if you've ever known anyone who was into Nascar, they nailed it right on the head. I used to date a guy who had a whole wall dedicated to Dale Earnhart.

According to my stat counter, I had 44 hits yesterday! Pretty cool.

Daniel will be "multi-sporting" this weekend. He has a soccer game tonight, and his first track meet on Sunday. Rachael and Joseph are buried under rehearsals as the play "Miss Saigon" opens next week. I let Rachael get her hair darkened for the play, she is after all supposed to be Aisian, but it's not too dark. Joseph goes for a military haircut tomorrow, as he is supposed to be "Vietcong". He's getting what's called a "high and tight".

Well, I guess that's it for now. Have a great weekend all!

I will need a picture of this "high and tight" haircut. I have two brothers who are or have been in the military and I've never heard of it.

Maybe you can sleep in tomorrow? Nope - sleepover!!! In fact, you might not get much sleep at all.

I hope "Rick" doesn't start getting Aaron into trouble.

Or, maybe you can turn this around? Tell Aaron that "Rick" wants him to clean his room. hahaha .. It might work!

I loved Talladega Nights too. It was stupid, but it cracked me up! Have a good weekend!

Don't settle, not ever!

I'm all too familiar with a "high and tight"- certainly not my favorite haircut. My ex-husband was a Marine many years ago.

Have a great weekend.
